Too my 6 or so followers, sorry I’m late posting, but better late than never I guess!
I grabbed my gear today and headed out to Cools Pond to grab a some pictures of the many different birds that inhabit the area. Yellow-headed Blackbirds, Red-winged Blackbirds, Wood Ducks, Mallards, Ring Necked Pheasants, it goes on and on. While out shooting, this interesting fellow in a beat up old Chevy pulled up across the street from me. “Come here, I want to talk to you.” he says. I’m thinking, this should be interesting, considering I’m on public land, a sanctuary no less. “What’s up?” I asked him. Turns out, he has a small owl living in a hollowed out tree on his property that he wants me to check out. So, off we go. After checking out his property (and owl, of course), turns out there’s as much character there as there is in my new friend, Ed. His place is full of old trucks, mowers, barns and sheds, bird houses, and all other types of potential subjects, I could spend weeks there shooting, and he has given me permission to do just that! So expect to see Ed, his cat Bastard, the owl, and more over the weeks to come!
